Next Stop Chelsea

We’re in New York City for a 5 day big city treat, with big qualifying both city and treat.  Yes, we were just in Paris.  Yes, we are very lucky to be able to have these experiences.  Yes, we are aware of our great privilege and are savoring it.  We’re renting an apartment in Chelsea through AirBnB, and we have a private terrace, we can see the sky, hear the city roar out the windows, and are about to go check out Cafe Grumpy, arguably the best coffee shop in Manhattan.



On top of all this, we spent the morning with Emilio.  Life is good.
